Awards Dinner Postponed, but not Our People First Agenda!
One of West Virginia’s biggest strengths is our people and strong sense of community. As we all are experiencing unprecedented times, we here at WV Citizen Action are continuing to care for one another during this pandemic.  Every year, we look forward to the Spring Fling, however we are taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe by postponing this year’s celebration. In the meantime, we encourage you to please give what you can now to support the important work that needs to be done all the way through our present crisis. Our goal is to emerge from this crisis stronger through community engagement and continuing to make a difference in our state and nation!
